FWIW, I edit both Root (to toggle a tree from r/o anon pserver to r/w
ext) and Repository (to change absolute paths to `cat Root`-relative)
all the time.

Since {arch} is only actually visible in the root, I'm just as happy
using tla tree-root.

In fact, hiding it would be a benefit to me personally.  Although I've
never had reason to do it except nosiness, I have often enough found
myself rooting around for something nonexistent in dists--devo--1.0 or
the like, simply because "{" had a TAB expansion to "{arch}/"....
